Great Egret in Dead Tree

Great Egret Silhouette in Tree

I’ve seen all sizes of birds land in this dead tree, from swallows to eagles. Sometimes they share, but this Great Egret had it all to himself. It is protected on a small island created by canals at the edge of two old rice fields. Humans can’t get to it and it has a  360 degree view over several impoundments, useful for scoping out a bird’s next meal.
